‘SwiftPhones reduce cost of int’l roaming’

The Swift Networks has introduced a new digital telephone service to offer international roaming at reduced costs through its SwiftPhones.

Managing Director, Swift Networks Limited, Mr Charles Anudu, while disclosing this in Lagos, said that subscribers of SwiftPhones could save a lot of money on both local and international calls by subscribing to latest service from his firm.

He pointed out that the service is network agnostic and will be bundled for Swift broadband subscribers as well as being made available to the subscribers of other broadband networks anywhere in the country, as a stand-alone service.

He explained that the only requirement is the availability of broadband internet, stressing that the branded SwiftPhone, allows subscribers to use “Virtual” Nigerian numbers from anywhere in the world to make and receive calls at Nigerian rates on their Nigerian bill.

“With SwiftPhone, national long distance or international roaming rates do not apply and are avoided,” he asserted, emphasising that with the broadband internet and data bundles, Swift Network is offering its subscribers the advantage of “many services, one service provider, one bill” convenience.

SwiftPhone service, Mr. Anudu said, is made possible by the firm’s recent investments in the Next-Generation Networks (NGN)-based Internet Protocol (IP) and access technologies.

He reiterated that Swift Network is able to achieve significant cost savings, which it intends to pass on to the subscribers through this service.

“Swift digital phone service is ideal for businesses, and professionals that want to communicate, collaborate and compete better,” he said.

Mr. Anudu explained that what is unique about the new phone service is its ‘from-anywhere-to-anywhere’ feature.

“Apart from being simple, convenient and affordable, we’re pleased to bring to Nigerians the benefits of modern IP communication technology. The world has at last become truly a global village for Nigerians,” he said.

Broadband subscribers, he said, could save on local and international calls, send and receive clear fax messages, and be assigned up to 10 telephone and fax lines.

“More lines and E1 circuits are available to larger enterprises. The service also comes standard with caller identification (ID), voicemail, voice to email, call waiting and 3-way call conferencing, all at no extra costs to the subscriber,” Mr. Anudu enlightened.
